Synopsis

Ryo is sent out by the people of a village to kill the monster which has been attacking the villagers. It is rumored that this monster is a cat-woman named Bagi. As Ryo waits for the monster to come to its watering hole, he thinks back to how he first met Bagi as a kitten who learned how to write, and later reenters his life on a quest to discover who and what she really is. But now she has gone wild, and as the time of her arrival approaches, he strengthens his resolve to kill her.

I actually enjoyed this movie pretty much, the story is strong, as you would expect from Tezuka. It deals with genetic manipulation at a time where it wasn't so common to hear the issue and it's well constructed, except some plot holes here and there.

The first series of Lupin in 71 are better animated that this movie. And the voices are often out of synch with the characters mouths.

Well, to be able to enjoy this one, you'll have to ...

As the godfather of manga and anime, Osamu Tezuka is held in such reverence and awe over his decades-long contributions to the country.

Bagi is one of them. And, like most of those faded, forgotten stories, they are best left in obscurity.

Let's get the "elephant in the room" out of the way first: furries. Yes, I know, the red-headed stepchild ...
